This function removes start-of-frame and end-of-frame markers from your data. The original capture file is not altered during this process.  You cannot unframe from the Capture File Viewer (accessed by selecting Capture File Viewer or Load Capture File to start the software and used only for viewing capture files).

To manually unframe your data:

  1. Select Unframe from the File menu on the Control window. Unframe is only available if a protocol stack was used to capture the data and there is currently no protocol stack selected.

In addition to choosing to Unframe, you can also be prompted to Unframe by the Protocol Stack Wizard.

  1. Load your capture file by choosing Open from the File menu on the Control window.
  2. Select the file to load.
  3. Choose Protocol Stack from the Options menu on the Control window
  4. Select None from the list
  5. Click Finish. The Protocol Stack Wizard asks you if you want to unframe your data and put it into a new file.

  1. Choose Yes.

The system removes the frame markers from your data, puts the unframed data into a new file, and opens the new file. The original capture file is not altered.

See "Reframing" for instructions on framing unframed data.
